  1. Bettarazzi added a post in a topic: Recommended Tank for Betta and Tetras   

    I prefer to use standard tanks just because I like the flexibility of choosing what I put in there. But I admit there are some very attractive tank packages available. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with the filter flows of the newer ones. Depending on the type of filter you might be able to modify the outflow to diffuse it. Heavily planting the tank can also create enough quite resting places. 
    I don't like tetras with bettas. I find them to be fin nippers. Better companions are corydoras. Some of the smaller varieties are very cute. I've heard that rasboras might be less nippy but I haven't tested this myself.

    Well done. Some good form there. Love the wide dorsals.

    Sorry to hear about the losses. Hopefully they'll stabilise now.

    You didn't add any meds at all? Salt? I lost 3 spawns to ich and velvet a couple of summers ago.

    Bloody ich. Hope they recover. You might have to try a half dose of ich meds.

    That's awful that your tank got poisoned. I'm glad you're back into it now.

    Oh hey... could you please make sure you do a count of how many you get of each variation so we can feed that data into the genetics projects?

    I have a current spawn that is marble to solid although the marble had lost most of his pattern. The result is a lot of solids, a small number of bicolours and only a few cellos. No good marbles at all. But I guess the father didn't retain his marble pattern either.

    Naughty daddies. More often than not dads eat eggs that are unfertilised. I always test that theory by removing the male straightaway the next time he spawns. In some cases the eggs have hatched. In one instance I had to conclude the male was shooting blanks.

    A few of the patoti babies have been released. Male looks like he's still got more. They're smaller than I expected.

      Leave them with the parents or remove them? Will the mother eat them?

    Thanks for the grindal worm culture, my housemates didn't exactly understand why I got excited when an envelope of dirt and worms arrived, but you and I; we know about the secret joys of such things.

    Thanks once again!

    Ugh! Uncarded a female yesterday to give the male next to her some exercise. Today she dropped all her eggs. Grr!

  11. Bettarazzi

    Keeping fingers crossed that my Copper x Black eggs are going to hatch. Female is definitely fertile but they didn't look like they were wrapping in the right position.

  12. Bettarazzi

    I'll put up a video once I've unpacked them all. I'm still cleaning tanks!! LOL They're still in the box. Almost there though.
